One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back and forth in time-from the actor's early days as a film star to fifteen years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains-this suspenseful, elegiac, spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor's first wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed prophet. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.… (més)

Probably the most realistic Dystopian story I have read, and hits especially close to home post-Covid, thinking about what could have been if it had a higher and faster mortality rate! ( )
  Amzzz | Sep 23, 2022 |
If there's one book to sum up this current age of the pandemic, it's this. ( )
  Joannerdrgs | Sep 22, 2022 |
The aftermath of survivors traveling across America from a deadly virus that killed much of the world's population. The author did well intertwining various lives of her characters, in particular the comic book in the story which linked the artist, her ex-husband, and the girl at the theatre. ( )
  AChild | Aug 30, 2022 |
I enjoyed the worldbuilding in this book, and I thought the multifaceted story linking to a singular character was intriguing. The best part was that that singular character died prior to the chaos that overtook the world, and yet all were connected by him in what came after. Neat, but too hopeful for the tone I was looking for at this time. I need something dark, something that maybe doesn't end with more than just a hint of hope. ( )
  camb2mr | Aug 26, 2022 |
I read this book in about 16 nonconsecutive hours, captivated from the first chapter. When I woke up at 5:30, rather than go back to sleep, I read this. Extraordinary. Sort of The Stand meets A Visit From the Goon Squad but more than the sum of those parts. The rare work of fiction that contains another work--the titular Station Eleven--that I would kill to see. So perfectly intertwined and plotted, but doesn't hit you over the head with the connections. I can't wait to reread it. ( )

Station Eleven is not so much about apocalypse as about memory and loss, nostalgia and yearning; the effort of art to deepen our fleeting impressions of the world and bolster our solitude. Mandel evokes the weary feeling of life slipping away, for Arthur as an individual and then writ large upon the entire world.
afegit per zhejw | editaThe Guardian, Justine Jordan (Sep 25, 2014)
 
Survival may indeed be insufficient, but does it follow that our love of art can save us? If “Station Eleven” reveals little insight into the effects of extreme terror and misery on humanity, it offers comfort and hope to those who believe, or want to believe, that doomsday can be survived, that in spite of everything people will remain good at heart, and that when they start building a new world they will want what was best about the old.
afegit per zhejw | editaNew York Times, Sigrid Nunez (Sep 12, 2014)
 
Mandel’s solid writing and magnetic narrative make for a strong combination in what should be a breakout novel.

The bright side of the planet moves toward darkness
And the cities are falling asleep, each in its hour,
And for me, now as then, it is too much.
There is too much world.
